So, my travels have taken me to Montreal this weekend, where a former coworker of Rami’s (and a good friend to us both) has been kind enough to let us stay with his family for the weekend. This isn’t something to be taken lightly, though—if someone else is going to let you stay where they sleep, there are things you should and shouldn’t do to be a bud and not a burden.

  • DO offer to help around the house as much as possible
  • DON’T leave your stuff all over the place, making it look like a war zone
  • DO follow the lead of your host if you haven’t established a schedule of your own
  • DON’T tell your host how to do things
  • DO something to show your appreciation for them letting you stay over
  • DON’T do anything to make the situation awkward or uncomfortable
  • DO clean up after yourself
  • DON’T get involved in anything that isn’t your business
  • DO trust your host
  • DON’T be a total pest

These are only a start. You’ll need your common sense, manners and generosity to ensure that they’d be open to doing so again sometime in the future.
